    Didnt know about that one! Thanks!
    The amount of times I just want an explorer window and end up having to get a run box up and then type a drive letter!


    Windows + L for me - second nature now when I leave the PC

    The windows + D is useless when you are running Windows updates. As soon as you click on anything that opens an explorer window the windows updates pops back up.

    I usually keep my finger hovering over the e key ready for all the end nows i need to get rid of

    All the windows shortcuts are disabled here, even for me.

    CC3 by chance? Ours are too - can't use Windows+R etc but can use the Alt+Whatever.

    Nope dont have CC3, just normal Server 2003 and XP i think it is set in GP at the highest point, i would alter it but i would have to readjust it for the other staff and students, it was set up before i started.
    None of the windows shortcuts work.

    It's possible to change this in the Usertype GPOs if desired (make a copy of a usertype, make changes, apply the new usertype to desired users).

    Kind of off topic now but that doesn't bother me too much - what does bother me is the fact I can't look at MMC's etc when logged in as myself. Got to log in as systemadmin to do that and TBH I don't like doing it.

    CTRL + Z to undo my last error. I do seem to use this one rather a lot.
